Today, November 23, marks the 20th anniversary of one of hip-hop’s most important albums to date, Snoop Dogg’s debut album Doggystyle. Regarded as a main influence for the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Nipsey Hussle, the Dr. Dre and Suge Knight-executive produced album has pushed the envelope in terms of production, flow delivery and gangsta rap in general. The Doggfather himself sat down with MTV to reflect on the landmark album and shared his thoughts on making-of process. Surprisingly, he candidly admits that he has never heard the album from front to back in entirety since its release.

“I don’t believe I’ve ever listened to the whole album and I’m being honest with you. I ain’t never listen to Doggystyle top to bottom. I may have listened to songs, but I’ve never listened to it.”

In order to celebrate this occasion appropriately, Snoop also shared a mixtape of all the samples that were used for this masterpiece.
